Review Tech Tiles

Tariq Abdulla
Decent animation, unusual game design, lots of levels, simple controls
In-app purchases
Tech Tile for Android is a game of tapping coloured tiles as they scroll past. It’s in the kind of “Guitar Hero” genre, but you’re actually making music with your taps. Just frantically hitting all the colored tiles, which goes well with the energetic 8-bit dance music in the background. This is one piece of game music I can genuinely say I love to bits. It’s all feelgood and lovely, like end-of-a-funny-movie music.
There are 3 game modes. “Long Distance” where you go as far as you can while an energy bar keeps running down, “Time Attack” which is a 10 second limit, and “Endurance” which is a 1 minute limit. 1 minute is actually a surprisingly long time, and it’s quite easy to mess up before finishing. The game keeps a record of your three best scores in each mode, so you can keep trying to beat yourself. Long Distance is possibly the most challenging mode, as that energy bar runs down real quick, so you have to keep the pace up.
The thing is that there really isn’t much difference between the modes, the game plays out exactly the same; so having three different highscores kinda feels like too much. Of course, if you get competitive with your friends, it could still be interesting.
The game changes through different colors all the time, including the menu screen, which is a nice touch. You can unlock different “faces” for the tiles, but apart from that there isn’t much to keep you playing over a longer period. Tech Tiles is a well designed game, and it takes a lot of concentration - either in an intense 10 second burst, or over a few minutes.

Tech Tiles for Android is a fun game that will get you tapping at break neck speeds. The gameplay is simple, but it's incredibly difficult to master. Like many other timekiller games, you will keep playing till you make a mistake, and at that point a summary of your performance will be shown.
In this game, you will need to tap on highlighted squares in order as they scroll onto the screen. Pressing the wrong tile will end the game, and taking too long to press the next tile will also force the game to end. As you continue to play, the timer will reduce in size, which means you will have to gradually get faster to ensure your survival. The whole concept of this game has been done before, but this time round things look really nice.
The simple yet stylish graphics burst out with color and the in-game interface makes it easy for you to view your previous scores and take a look at unlocked achievements. Thanks to the Google Play Games system, there are a range of achievements to unlock in this game, but besides from this there is really nothing to progress towards. There are no levels or stages in this game, it's just you, the game mechanics, and your fast fingers.
Even though things do get quite hectic after a while, this is the first game that I've seen to run smoothly whilst going at top speeds. It's surprisingly easier to rack up points in this game too, and this may be to do with the great color scheme that makes it clear where you next need to tap.
Tech Tiles is free to play, but you will have a limited amount of turns unless you spend on an in-app purchase to unlock the full version.
